Something Left To Say

I’ve been silent these past couple of days, partially because I’ve been trying to listen. Although I’ve been quiet online, I’ve been keeping busy. A lot has happened in the past few months. And yet I feel a vague sense of discomfort. PANAS EUY PANAS KALI SOCMED AKHIR-AKHIR INI!

Regardless of whom you supported at the polls, this year has been exhausting. If you woke up this morning feeling like you desperately need a break, you’re not alone. I’m not politician. I never liked the label for myself. I’d rather think of myself as a learner. Sometimes it’s not clear what exactly needs to be said, or what form it will take, or even whether it will have any impact on the world. I don’t always know how to sculpt the right words or paint what I’m describing. I have no idea whether it will take months or years to tell the story I want to tell. But as long as I feel I have something interesting left to say, I’m going to keep saying it.

Saya bukan Tuhan, yang layak memberi label hitam atau putih. Terlepas dari isu politik belakangan ini pun saya mungkin tak ada kapasitas untuk berbicara karena saya bukan siapa-siapa. Hal yang menjadi fokus saya adalah, betapa orang di dunia maya itu bisa menjadi begitu ‘luwes’ berkomentar lewat jari jemari. Mulai dari penampakan fisik orang lain, keputusan-keputusan yang diambil seseorang, kehidupan seseorang, gosip dan masiiiiih banyak lagi dari hal yang berat sampai yang receh-receh. Continue reading

My Productivity Tactics

Happy Wednesday, folks!! I hope you’re having a fantastic week, and an even better weekend ahead! …Is there such a thing as a bad weekend??

I have a question for you. When’s the last time you started something? An event, an organization … bla bla bla? What “thing” have you been wanting to start or maybe have already started but lost motivation for, that you can make a reality in your life?

The act of starting something isn’t too terrible; in fact, it’s exciting! The beginning stages of anything new brings a whole new world to dive into, and it can be fun learning about everything and sharing this exciting new venture with friends and family.

What can be a little more difficult and maybe even seemingly impossible for some people? The finishing of that thing. I’m a finisher. I commits to a lot of things — meetings, events, projects, clients, the list goes on and on. And despite the extent of what I’m saying “yes” to, I inevitably will make it my purpose to finish that thing, no matter what. Continue reading

How I Deal with Negative Comments

1441348845833

So today, let me share my thoughts how to respond to the negativity because I got negative comment on my blog. ^^

Social media…hmm yeaah it can bring out the best in people and the worst in people. No matter what business you are in, you are going to face times where peoples will leave a negative comment on your social media platforms. If there is one thing I want you to know, it is that you are not alone. This happens to everyone who puts themselves out there on social media. Truth be told, you don’t have to react to negative comments as though a crisis is taking place. Instead, you can choose to see negative comments as something you can build upon.

Congratulations, You Are Officially Human!

I absolutely love social medi but I absolutely despise the feeling it gives me every once in a while. I don’t know about you but every once in a while, I find myself scrolling down my timelines and feeing bouts of insecurity brush accross my heart.

It’s like these miniature waves of “envy” come over me as my heart begins to covet what others have in comparison to what I perceive to lack. “Wow, they are on another vacation in Europe … must be nice.” … “Oh , they are on another shopping spree … must be real nice.”

Ever been there and done that? Ever felt completely ridiculous for doing it? If so, you are not alone and CONGRATULATIONS…YOU ARE OFFICIALLY HUMAN! Though the enemy would love for you to feel as though you’re the only one who experiences these feelings, the truth is that you’re not alone. Continue reading

What I Like, Love, and Hate About Social Media

Today I’ll be writing a blog post about the things I love and hate about social media. This should be interesting.

I like how I can, with a click of a few buttons, message someone on the other side of the world without it taking days or years, depending on if they’re online and if your connection great, it’s almost instant. It’s scary how we’ve gone from waiting weeks and months on end for a reply to a letter of for your messenger to come back and now it’s instantaneous. Its amazing how much more power and control we have over things that back in the day they didn’t used to have.

I love how I connect with people like the way I can connect with my readers, I would spill my heart out and I’ve probably at least got someone out there reading my posts who understands the way I feel. I love the mysteriousness of being able to connect with people I’ve never met before without it putting me in an inch of danger. Especially as I can do this anonymously, could you have written something and put it up somewhere for everyone to see about your feelings and passions anonymously, 100 years ago? Probably not.

Umm…the internet is one scary fast moving thing. Continue reading

My Early Twenties Life Crisis

DSC_1231_1

Life is so hard. Sometimes, life makes so hard to breath and wake up in the morning. We wish that life will be easier to deal with perfect boyfriend, nice friends, and family. We want the perfect life to be live on. However, reality is harder than dream, but it is still worth to lived.

For me, my “adult” things started after I left college. Right after high school, I went to university that was 5 minutes away from my house.

So, here I am.

I began this year working at national company. I’m happy finally I got a job. Yes, I am officially employed. Ummm…little overwhelming, but I managed and love it so far.

Hati-Hati Menggunakan Social Media di Era Digital

Siapa di sini yang tak punya akun Facebook atau Twitter?

Saya yakin sekarang ini pasti rata-rata orang punya akun media social seperti Facebook atau Twitter. Bahkan masih ditambah lagi dengan akun-akun lain seperti Pinterest, Tumblr, +Google, Instagram, Path, dsb. Oleh karena itu saya jadi agak tergelitik untuk menulis tentang habits orang-orang di dunia persocmedan ini. At least, inilah yang baru saya alami, kejadian sedikit konyol namun ada pelajaran berharga bagi yang mau berpikir.

Sedikit flashback ke belakang, saya pertama kali mempunya akun Facebook pada tahun 2009. Mulai dari tahun 2009-2014 saya memakai nama yang bukan nama asli saya berhubung teman-teman dan relasi lebih mengenal saya dengan nama panggilan yang sudah saya sandang dari jaman SMA.

Niat untuk menggunakan nama asli saya dengan alasan agar terlihat lebih profesional mulai saya terapkan di tahun 20014 ini. Kalo tidak salah sekitar bulan Februari/Maret (saya agak lupa tepatnya). Saya sadar dan sudah bisa menebak bahwa pasti teman-teman saya akan kebingungan mencari akun Facebook saya dengan nama lama saya. Dan pasti banyak juga yang gag nyadar kalo saya pas update sesuatu berhubung nama saya mungkin sedikit asing. Namun begitu, saya tidak juga dengan sengaja woro-woro ngasih pengumuman kalo saya ganti nama Facebook. Biarkan mengalir seperti air, tar lama-lama juga pada tahu. Begitulah pemikiran saya.

Sampai kekonyolan yang pertama saya alami tepat hari ini. Continue reading
